I want to enable Hard Drive Compression on my NTFS drives. I am running WinXP Pro. Before I do so, are there any known issues with EMC9 if it is enabled?

 

Thanks in advance.

If you are running out of room, on your hard drives, you are better off getting a new, large hard drive, instead of compressing the ones you have now.

 

I don't know the answer to your question, because the last hard drive, that I compressed, was about 15 years ago. It did not affect any of my DOS or Windows programs.

Disk compression from the very early days of Drvspace and Dblspace has been a bit of a disaster. I recall back then finding out that if I used it, I had all sorts of problems, one being memory 'leaks' in that as the app was used for any length of time, it ran out of resources and hed to be shut down and the computer rebooted

 

Also, running compression on a drive slows things down
